The shooting happened Saturday after Scott ran from a traffic stop. It directly contradicts the statement Slager made about the shooting in which he claimed that Scott took his Taser from him after a tussle.

According to a statement released by the Department of Justice, FBI investigators are also looking into the case, working with South Carolina’s attorney general to investigate the possibility of any civil rights violations in the shooting death. North Charleston’s mayor, Keith Summey, called Slager’s actions a “bad decision,” saying, “When you’re wrong, you’re wrong. If you make a bad decision, don’t care if you’re behind the shield or just a citizen on the street, you have to live by that decision.”
